Was wondering when someone was gonna start a topic on this. Yeh bit of a bummber with XXXL not attending, might make way for some other rides. Can't think of any new rides that will be in sideshow alley in that main area. But in the family carnival where Pirate's Revenge was last year there will be a new family coaster being debuted...

the upgrade was the worst thing that ever happened to the showgrounds, the 2 major carnival area's used to be insane.... how many people can say they rode a HUSS PIRATE or ZIPPER on a rooftop? (besides adelaide people haha)

It's classified as a family ride but could be said to be a thrill, that thing flies. Good to see Thunderbolt's back on aswell, still deserves to be on the capitals. Also the Runaway Train making it's debut, Joyland's latest ride, be interesting to hear how this goes, I'm sure it'll be popular

Yeh it can Huss, Bell's Thunderbolt pulled off the other day. And also the Kamikaze there is the ex-TPA Satori model, now owned by Justin Gill

Runaway Train, well named Wild WIld West I think is Joyland's new family coaster. There's a photo on the show's website

didnt really get many photos today, but back on tuesday, nothing much to report, other than it looked like someone while riding NO LIMIT kicked the side clear perspex and snapped off a corner, sending the plastic flying towards Chants games.... safety crew were all around...The ride kept operating, so nothing major :-)
